and "wall street journal" that show a tight race between the president and mitt romney. and we're looking through the eyes of the "saturday night live" crew. a special campaign edition later on in the show. first, let us get to the news live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in the center of new york city. we do begin with new developments out of libya. the a.p. reporting the u.s. state department is pulling more staffers out of its embassy in the capital of tripoli over security fears. the move is expected to be temporary until the security situation improves. the embassy was already operating with limited staff following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead. it is now been 17 days since that attack. sources say fbi agents sent to investigate the murders still have not been able to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear tha
on benghazi, libya. that night the romney campaign releases a statement condemning the attacks, but criticizing the obama administration for the cairo embassy release about the anti-islam film. also that night, the white house disavows the original cairo embassy press release on the film. september 12. >> u.s. ambassador to libbia, our ambassador has been killed along with three other americans after a series of attacks. >> america's commitment to religious goes back to the very beginning of our nation. but let me be clear. there is no justification for this. none. >> overnight press release. >> governor romney do you think coming so soon after the events unfolded overnight was appropriate to be weighing in on this crisis as it's unfolding in real-time? >> the white house also said they tried to distance themselveses from the comment and not reflecting of their views up had the same reaction. >> rose garden minutes later. >> we will not waiver in the commitment to see that justice is done for the terrible act. >> they already know the attack was a terrorist act, listed it as su
about what happened in the last four years. >> kimberly: that is not what ann romney has been hearing. she spoke to greta last night. >> i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around, it is nearly universal. that they are talking about jobs, the economy, their future. they are talking about debt, entitlement and everything that is so critical we make sure that we get ahold on this economy. >> kimberly: eric, wouldn't it seem to make a lot of sense that women would support the candidacy of mitt romney because hof his experience with the economy, with jobs, with trying to put food on the table, money in the bank? >> eric: again, i don't understand why people are voting for barack obama. women, single women are voting for barack obama overwhelmingly. look what is going on. we talked about it how many times? 500,000 fewer jobs held by women in america this time around versus four years ago when he took over. the unemployment among african-americans, 97% of african-americans are going to vote for barack obama. b
of the line, and that is what should keep mitt romney up at night. that really puts the onus on what happens in the debates and i don't believe that at this point in the game, that romney can do something on his own that will change the course of this race. you basically need obama to make a big mistake, which at this point in the race, what you need is three things. something has to be important, it has to be new and it has to be easily digestible. the 47% statement is all three of those things. >> yep. >> you have to have something on obama's side that is comparable to that and it is hard to imagine what that could be. >> kristen soltis, it may be coincidence but since that 47% story broke, it was so damaging to mitt romney that you just get a sense now that he's got to do something pretty impactive and powerful to get that off the agenda, because the one area that we all believe he had the advantage over barack obama was the economy. suddenly in one fell swoop, you have a guy who has basically written off half the country as a bunch of scrounging victims. that is not good. >> well, i agre

pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so threatening on those issues. we need this debate. we have problems as a country, n
